Back
A life well lived is
measured by people in
different ways. There are
some who would claim it
is the accomplishments
achieved in one’s lifetime
such as the honors and
recog nition
of
a
distinguished career.
Others would assert it is
the passing on to further
generations such things
as wealth, knowledge,
and the tangible results of
a lifetime. Still others
who would allege it is the
legacy of children,
grandchildren and great
grandchildren. All these
are indeed signs of a life
well lived and to be
celebrated when a loved
one passes on to the
next adventure in their
journey. Mary Jean
certainly achieved honors
in her life most recently
the Woman of Valor
award from Church
Women United. She
passed along to many
generations her wise
teaching of the Bible and
spiritual matters. And we
at Westminster consider
ourselves her children,
and grandchildren, and
great grandchildren in
spirit if not biologically.
Yet, we know Mary Jean’s
“greatness” was really
measured in a different
way. She was above all a
humble servant of the
Lord.
the midst of sickness;
watched over the dying;
and buried those she
loved. She served the
poor;
attended
community organizations;
worked with people of
other denominations and
faith traditions; and gave
l e a de r s h i p
to the
community of Madison.
She was above all a
servant and therein lies
her greatness and legacy.
Vern Forsberg, our other
Pastor Emeritus, pointed
this out to me when he
thought of this scripture
f rom Matthew to
describe Mary Jean. “The
greatest among you will be
your servant.” Mary Jean
was a servant to
Westminster Church and
the Madison community
for over twenty five
years. She baptized
babies; taught Sunday
school and Confirmation
classes; led youth groups;
recognized graduations;
married
couples;
celebrated new births;
ministered to people in
Mary Jean was an amazing
servant. I was awed by
her ability to remember
all the people she served
– their children and
grandchildren as well as
what was going on in their
lives. For all the softness
of grace that was an
integral part of her, there
w a s a n u n b e n di n g
strength in her as well.
She was one of the first
Presbyterian women to
be ordained in Madison
and, like any trailblazer,
she had to be comfortable

in her own skin. I have
been told many times by
Westminster members that
you couldn’t say no to
Mary Jean when she asked
you to volunteer to serve
in some way in the church.
She was a strong advocate
for mission both locally and
globally. Even as her health
diminished she continued
to serve both in the church
and in the community.
Mary Jean died quietly in
her sleep on a Saturday
night. She had been
accompanied in her final
weeks by many of her
“children”
from
Westminster who loved
her just as she had loved
them. There was no
pomp or pageantry as
she passed away. But I
can imagine though, that
as the angels gathered to
worship that Sunday
morning, there was much
fanfare and celebration
for Mary Jean had come
home into the arms of
the God she loved and
served throughout her
life. And as she was
embraced and welcomed

by all the saints of the
church she heard these
words from God who
simply said, “Well done,
Good
and
Faithful
servant!”

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE FOR FEB. 25, 2013
Progress has been great on
the building project! The
Yuma and Narthex areas are
nearly complete, with the
goal of returning to the
sanctuary for
Palm
Sunday service with the
organ.
The Yuma street entrance is
complete; just waiting for
railings and automatic door
opener. Narthex work
includes painting, window
installation, ceiling tiles,
heating & A/C; and over 50%
of the floor carpeting is
finished. Delivery and
installation of the stair
railings should be completed
in the next couple of weeks.
The lounge is carpeted,
painted, and has new ceiling
tiles. The upstairs small
kitchen has been finished and
needs only the plumbing
connected.
February 27, 2013
In the sanctuary the chancel
wood floor and the main
vinyl floor have been
installed. Pew upholstering
began last week, and the
installer has indicated he will
work 12-hour days to
completion by our Palm
Sunday deadline.
Moving from the old offices
to the new is a bit delayed
and as soon as more
information on the move
date is available an
announcement will be made.
The landscape subcommittee
is preparing an overall plan
with the help of Prof.
Harrington and one of his
students from the UW
landscaping class that
developed some alternatives
during the last semester.
A furniture subcommittee
will decide soon on the
needs for the Narthex and
the lounge. We hope to
have new furniture in place
by mid-May.
A NOTE ABOUT: our
parking lot - the city has
notified us they will be
modifying the city water
mains this summer; which
means we will coordinate
with them on removing the
old pavement, re-grading,
and laying new pavement.
(This city project will probably
take place during the months
of June-August)

HYGIENE KITS in March!
When you hear about a
disaster in the news, don’t
you wonder how you can
h e l p ? T h e mi s s i o n
committee wants you to
know that when we
support the One Great
Hour of Sharing, we ensure
that the church is able to
respond right away to
provide assistance to
victims of disaster. We are
also
offering
the
opportunity to assist in
another way this year--we
will be assembling the
Hygiene Kits that are
provided to those in need
when disaster strikes in a
community.
We are asking you to help
by purchasing items that
are needed for the kits.
Then we will assemble the
kits after worship on
Sunday, March 17. We
are asking that you buy
several of one of the items
necessary for the kits. We
will put out tags March 3
with a list of what is
needed and will ask items
to be returned the
following week. The items
required are very specific,
and are all packaged in a re
-sealable bag so that they
are ready for distribution.
Our goal is to provide 50
kits!
Please join us in the
assembly process—many
hands means it will just
take a few minutes of
your time to help those
in need!
The kit includes the
following items:
1
hand towel
(approximately 16" x
28", no fingertip or
bath towels)
1
washcloth
1
wide-tooth comb
(remove from
package)
1
nail clipper (no
metal files or emery
boards; remove from
package)

The World Day of Prayer is a
worldwide movement of
Christian women of many
traditions who come
together to observe a
common day of prayer each
year, and who, in many
countries, have a continuing
relationship in prayer and
service.
It is a movement initiated
and carried out by
women in more than 170
countries and regions.
It is a movement
symbolized by an annual
day of celebration – the
first Friday of March – to
which all people are
welcome.
It is a movement which
brings together women of
various races, cultures
and traditions in closer
fellowship, understanding
and action throughout
the year.
Through World Day of
Prayer, on March 1, 2013,
women affirm that prayer and
action are inseparable and
that
both
have
immeasurable influence
in the world.
The motto of the World

already in the works. This
means it is time to start
thinking about Vacation Bible

own Westminster VBS this
year in our new building.
The Education committee is
forming a sub-committee to
work specifically on VBS plans.
If you have an interest in
exploring potential themes,
developing creative plans for
educating our children and
inviting other children in
please consider being part
of the 2013 VBS team!
The VBS team will meet
about once every six
weeks until June. If you are
interested please contact
Pastor Kathleen.
PEN PALS NEEDED FOR THOREAU STUDENTS
We have a new opportunity
to increase our relationship
with students at Thoreau
Elementary by forming pen
pals between our members
and students. It is very helpful
for children to have the
opportunity to practice their
writing skills by writing letters.
Pen pals are needed to write

some practice with
their reading as well.
